Once a Shipment has been created click the "Add Container" button on a dewar in the shipment
This will take you to the register container page. Here you can register samples for this puck.
Firstly you need to select the puck from the drop down at Registered Container. After that each sample needs to be given a protein acronym and sample name as a minimum. Barcode and spacegroup can also be specified if needed. The "+" icon can be used to clone a sample in a similar mannar to the GDA client.
When a protein acronym and sample name has been specified ISPyB considers the sample to be valid and shows this as a green circle in the puck graphic. You can navigate to a particular sample position by clicking on the puck graphic
Ideally the protien should be registered, to gain best use of automated pipelines a pdb and sequence are required. It is possible to add a new protein acronym by typing into the protein acronym box and press Tab.
You will be prompted to confirm the new protein addition
Click "Ok" and the new protein will be created
To run automated phasing pipelines (Fast EP or Big EP) the anomalous scatterer must be supplied in the sample registration.
Finally to save your new puck click "Add Container" at the bottom of the page
